Milan keen on out-of-favour Gunners striker

Sky Sports understands that Italian giants AC Milan are prepared to offer Nicklas Bendtner a route out of Arsenal. The Denmark international appears to have no future at the Emirates after being deemed surplus to requirements. The 24-year-old spent last season on loan at Sunderland, netting eight times in all competitions, but the Black Cats have opted against making the move permanent. That decision has forced Bendtner back to North London, where the door to the first team remains bolted despite the Gunners' summer sale of Robin van Persie to Manchester United. Bendtner has openly expressed his desire to move on, and Arsenal are willing to listen to offers.

Enquiry

It is understood that Milan have made an enquiry, with the Serie A title hopefuls in the market for attacking talent after offloading Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Paris St Germain. Wherever Bendtner ends up at the close of the summer transfer window, his next international outing will not be coming at the start of 2014 World Cup qualification. UEFA have stung the striker with a one-match ban for 'improper conduct' and have rejected his appeal against the suspension and resulting fine. That means Bendtner, who was charged following an ill-advised goal celebration at Euro 2012, will sit out Denmark's meeting with the Czech Republic on 8th September.
